Getting ready for fall: Big Apple Fest held in Green Bay


GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – With fall right around the corner, the Oneida Cultural Heritage put on its Big Apple Fest Saturday in Green Bay.

Apple-picking was in full swing for the family-friendly event. It featured a farmer’s market, horses, apple pie eating contest and craft vendors.

People also got to tour historic log homes and see animals at a petting zoo.

A trolley took families out to the Oneida Apple Orchard for apple-picking. People who were there say it’s a good way to get into the spirit of autumn.

“Family, friends, we’re all relation, and the food is wonderful, and the shows are great,” said visitor Sharon Hansen.

“It’s a time to share ideas actually, and I invite the community to find out what Oneida is all about,” said Daniel King of the Wisconsin Indian Veteran Association in Oneida.

The first day of fall is on Sept. 22.
